VK3NM/VK6DC SOUND VAULT
this page you can listen to samples of 6 metre DX signals received in Melbourne
since the early eighties. Some of the contacts were conducted on 52 Mhz
before we gained use of 50 Mhz.I highly recommend getting a copy of the
G2 real audio player to listen to these sound files.
I would like to thank Gil VK3AUI (SK 27/11/03) for the loan of his 6m DX
log tapes since I have lost mine.

Geoff from Mexico recorded by VK2FLR 89/90 period.
Video signals on 49.750 Mhz from Russia and China is a very good indicator
for possible openings to JA and other countries this particular recording
was made by VK2FLR, These signals are very commonly heard in Melbourne
and with such strong signals that can cause TV crud on 50 Mhz.
